The more I learn about North Korea, the more thankful I am that I don’t live there. It is my definition of hell on earth. I do know some South Koreans and they are very nice people. It’s too bad their brothers and sisters are subjected to the life they are forced to live.

The Radio on day and night not being able to turn it off. I cannot imagine how awful that must be to someone that likes peace and quiet

Social class depends upon loyalty to the ruler(s)? Sounds pretty trumpian. Also trumpian is ignorance of every subject. But he is a consistent liar.

Wait a few years and some of this will arrive to the USA...The Antifa and BLM movements admire Marxism. They should go and live under such a regime for a while. Already you can't express views that they don't like. People take it lightly...

Very interesting and so familiar to me! Sounds very much like the Hitler Germany.my family told me about. I grew up in West Berlin, but was surrounded by a Communist regime just like North Korea. That's why everyone that could fled to the West and then the Berlin Wall was built.

Willis Marzolf, Much more likely if Trump is re-elected. Have you forgotten the infamous love affair? Also Trump is a great admirer of other dictators.

It's good men aren't required to have a "Dear Leader" haircut. I'd like to know what the approved haircuts look like.
